About us

We believe that General Practice is the cornerstone of our health and care system, providing holistic care to individuals and families to live independent, healthy, fulfilled lives.

The GP federation – Taurus Healthcare - was created by all Herefordshire GP practices supporting this ethos, to collaborate and maximise the time that GPs and their teams have to focus on patient care.

Working collaboratively allows us to support various back office and management functions, as well as delivering some clinical services that require scale, to provide general practice services across 24 hours, 7 days a week.

GP practices retain their individual leadership and responsibilities but are supported by a wider leadership team underpinned by the federation; this enables us to partner with local health and social care organisations, to help coordinate prevention and early intervention and maximise opportunities for more ‘joined up’ care.
